Only if you use CarPlay/Android auto with 3rd party apps. The latest version of Waze has the option to display gps speed.

The in car navigation will not show the speed limit or give warnings.

As said by "pepe", above, you need to run a third party navigation program such as Waze or Google maps.
However, for this you need to set up Android Auto for your phone to communicate the program. This means that GPS reception relies on your phone having a strong coninuous signal. It also depends where you place your phone in the car to obtain good GPS reception.

I do not know about Android auto, but any nav app in Apple Carplay uses the car's gps signal (only when usb is connected, which is always the case in the Astra since wireless is not supported).
